Grupo semillas de libertad (Group Seeds of Freedom) is an organization of diverse young women that works towards realising the full exercise of their rights and the autonomy of their bodies through the construction of political subjects who can fight to break stereotypes established by the hetero-patriarchal system and stereotypes that condition and violate women through the capitalist, neoliberal and patriarchal systems of oppression.
The group’s greatest achievement was to participate in actions to mobilize approval for their four central causes. Given the oppression of young women in cultural, economic and religious contexts, encouraging young women -and even their mothers- to participate was a key challenge. However, GSL believes there is still a lot of work to be done, especially on fundamental issues such as young women’s sexuality, autonomous control of their bodies, and the spaces they inhabit. On the other hand, in legal terms, there have been considerable advances regarding the four great causes that GSL is fighting for. Local Deputy Lorena Peña was key in passing the Rule of Law Initiative that legalized such causes. Aside from GSL, many other organizations have joined the struggle, such as Alianza por la salud, Colectiva feminista, Las mesoamericanas en resistencia, COINCIDIR, Jóvenes voceros y voceras.
